Snowy cottage in the woods

Just been playing with a, new to me, stamp from Crafty Individuals. Tried stamping it in various colours,this one is versafine smokey gray, just a few little touches of colour and lots of glitter,piece of star embossed blue card and a surround of silver glitter card, if I make more of these would probably add a sentiment.

This one actually looks a lot better in real life, stamped with encore blue ink, embossing folder inked with the same colour.  I like the top one better but the actual image stamped in blue is lovely, just needs a less busy background I think.

I'd like to enter the first card into Mo's June Rudolph challenge


  1. What a lovely stamp, and two beautiful cards you have made xxx

  2. Two very beautiful cards and the scene is just right for the backgrounds.

    Have a good day

  9. I love the two different yet amazing creations made with the same stamp! I'd be hard-pressed to select a favorite among them!

  10. Two lovely cards Joan! It's amazing how different they look mostly through changing the background colour - lovely little scene!

    If you're wanting to join in with more challenges, we'd love to see you in the Snippets Playground. It runs fortnightly, one entry per fortnight and is always anything goes - so long as you use scraps/snippets somewhere on your card. Even one snippet is fine - and it can be card. paper, ribbon, lace - anything left over really!

  16. These are both so pretty but I think the first is my fave cuz the image pops against the cobalt background.
